Super sub Ebbe heads Saints into next round of UCL

1-0 win over Feronikeli sets up tie with Copenhagen

Substitute Dean Ebbe scored minutes after coming on to the pitch to give The New Saints a 1-0 win over Feronikeli in their UEFA Champions League QR1 second leg.

Saints needed to score having drawn last week's first leg at Park Hall 2-2, but it was the home side who came out early on with intent, Scott Ruscoe's side having to weather spells of early pressure before settling into the game.

Settle they did though, and the killer strike came midway through the second half, Ebbe heading in a cross from Simon Spender two minutes after replacing Adrian Cieslewicz.

That pressed the Kosovan champions into action, but they were unable to find a response, and Saints progress into QR2 where they will meet Danish champions FC Copenhagen.
